teve Arnold experi-
enced several scary
moments while he was
in Israel last week, but the
20-year-old Southfield resi-
dent said he would go again
if he had the chance.
Mr. Arnold, 20, is a
Yeshiva University student
who took part in the Jan. 15
"Operation Torah Shield,"
an El AL flight to Israel on
the very day that the United
Nations sanctioned force
should Iraqi forces still oc-
cupy Kuwait.
The trip offered some 400
participants $50 round-trip
air fares to Israel to study
Torah for one to two weeks.
The trip was subsidized by
an anonymous donor, re-
portedly from Florida, to
show solidarity with Israel.
There was also a standby list
of 400 for the journey on
Flight 012. Most of the pas-
sengers were faculty,
students and alumni of
Yeshiva University and
Stern College in New York.
Mr. Arnold said the flight
arrived in Israel to a great
deal of media hype, in-
cluding speeches from state
dignitaries at Ben-Gurion
Airport. A bus took Mr. Ar-
nold and many others to the
Western Wall and also to the
Knesset for further procla-
mations and publicity.
That was the fun part.
"After that, we spent the
next couple of days in sealed-
off rooms with gas masks
on," he said. "That wasn't so
much fun."
Mr. Arnold received his
own gas mask, complete
with instructions, at a
Jerusalem hotel. He said the
moment he received the
mask was the scariest part of
the entire trip.
"It's the realization that
all of this is for real that hits
you when you are given that
mask," he said.
Mr. Arnold did not have a
long wait before he got to try
out the mask. The con-
tingent was in Israel for two
days when Iraq launched its
first Scud missile attack on
Tel Aviv. Israeli authorities
believed at first that the
missile warheads were
modified to explode in a
cloud of poisonous gas.
"After a while it became a
reflex," he said. "You'd put
your mask on and go to the
sealed-off room. The most
difficult part was the an-
ticipation between attacks.

Steve Arnold:
"It became a reflex."

When was he (Saddam Hus-
sein) going to strike out at
Israel next? All day on Sat-
urday, no matter where I
was or who I was with, we
were all going nuts. The an-
ticipation, more than the
missiles, was killing us."
Mr. Arnold believes he
heard two explosions while
he stayed in Jerusalem. But
he did not see any damage.
Now, the only feelings he
has are guilty ones for coming
home. _
"I still find myself being
very tense even here in the
United States," he said.
"But while I was there I kept
waking up anticipating that
siren. That I don't miss."
